Found February 21, 2013 on NY Rangers Blog:
With the Rangers not confirming the nature of Rick Nash's injury, there has been a ton of speculation from the flu to re-aggravating an old groin injury to a concussion. So I decided to setup a Nash injury timeline to help us out. It all started with a little over 13 minutes left in the Rangers 4-3 shootout victory against the Bruins on February 12th when Milan Lucic did this to Nash... The Rangers were apparently not happy about the hit or that Lucic was not penalized. While the hit did seem to stun Nash, he was more than fine when he abused Tuukka Rask later in the game to help give the Rangers the victory... The Rangers didn't practice the next day, but Nash was on the ice with his teammates on Thursday morning for the pregame skate in preparation for the Rangers game against the Islanders that night. And Nash's prep must have been good, as in 24:59 of action Nash had an assist, was a +1 with two shots on goal while adding three blo...

Goal Breakdown: Rangers at Senators

For the third time in the last two weeks the Rangers blew a third period lead and as happened last Thursday against the Islanders, it ended in a shootout loss.  With three Rangers forwards, including Rick Nash, out with injury and seemingly every key Senator on the shelf, this could have been a dud of a game.  It was a huge improvement over Tuesday’s performance in Montreal...

The Head-Shots Keep Coming

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, So this is what the NHL has as a matter of entertainment, after at least three times within a week codifying as legal checks, on which the attacking player finishes off his opponent with a forearm or elbow that drives his prey into the glass or boards. The NHL has a quagmire like last night’s aesthetically displeasing match at the...

Rangers recall Christian Thomas

In a surprising move, the Rangers recalled F Christian Thomas from the CT Whale on Friday night.  With Arron Asham, Darroll Powe and Rick Nash all on the shelf, the Rangers had to play Stu Bickel at forward against Ottawa.  The team may be looking to avoid that situation again by giving Thomas a shot at the show. Thomas has been red hot for the Whale and has posted 13 goals and...

More Offense

If the New York Rangers want to have any kind of chance to both get into the postseason and go far in them, they will need a lot more offense. In Tuesday night's 3-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens, the Blueshirts probably had one of their worst offensive performances. There was no sustained pressure, not enough pucks thrown at Canadiens' netminder Carey Price and not enough...
